Modern Scandinavian

with a Victorian Gothic Twist

This period country house in a North Yorkshire hamlet was a fascinating project that delivered a contemporary, Scandinavian-inspired interior with Victorian Gothic details. The owners wanted large functional rooms with simple pure backdrops and clean lines. We created striking internal and external joinery on a grand scale.

The external windows and doors were designed to be consistent with the property’s Victorian Gothic exterior, Constructed from highly durable Accoya with ultra-high performance double glazed units. External doors featured striking Gothic arched glazing bar configurations. Large contemporary screens were designed for access to the expansive patio.

The internal joinery was predominantly contemporary in style, however, the four-panel doors and door linings featured a custom-designed gothic bolection mould – a nod to the gothic heritage. This mould was designed to be replicated proportionately across a full suite of internal joinery including differing ground, first and second floor doors and linings plus internal skirting and architraves.

All window reveals were panelled with the smallest bolection mould and incorporated window seats with radiators set behind a polished gothic patterned brass grille. An eclectic array of cabinetry was designed to house modern living requirements in the contemporary-gothic fusion style. Finally, a second staircase was designed to acknowledge the original main staircase, but hand-finished in a striking piano black French polish.
